You are all invited to join AFH-Lexington in a Kick-off meeting for a very exciting event.
The event will take place on September 21st (Friday).
The city is allowing us to reserve 15 spots along short street starting at Shakespeare and Co. and wrapping the corner down by Parlay Social.
The ‘AFH-Lexington’ spot is in the middle of the block directly in front of the ‘Village Idiot’.
It should be a fun evening. lexArts is going to host an Art Slam in Cheapside Park, and there is also a trolley hop / gallery hop the same night.
We will be having our monthly meeting on the 21st, that’s next week! Oh, it gets better…we’re meeting at Karen’s house. A place where mere meetings become fun filled social engagements where ideas to implement social change and improve built environments can take seed and grow roots. Let’s call it Huiett’s House for Humanitarian Discourse through Design*.
The team for our Gretna Park Project will be meeting on Monday, August 27, 6:00PM at the Eskew Dumez & Ripple office. This will be a working meeting / design charrette to develop a master plan for the park. Before the meeting, individuals can post their ideas either under “Discussions” or to the FTP site.
